Here comes the bride...

Frank was in the field this week and I went home because my "second" mother, who I've known since I was a very little girl and who has always been an incredibly important person in my life, was visiting.

My mother, sister and I went wedding dress shopping when I was home earlier this month. I thought I had found my dress. It looked very Grecian and I cried when I put it on. I never expected to cry and really thought that was a sign. I tried on way too many dresses that day, though, and was extremely overwhelmed and exhausted by the time I put the dress on for a second time. We decided to go home and think about the dress.

I've been thinking about it ever since then and had pretty much decided that it wasn't the one. I have a very large chest and I felt like that was all you saw in the dress.

Yesterday my mom, sister, grandma, "second" mother and I went to another bridal shop. I put on another "Grecian" gown and loved it. I look better in Ivory, though, so I tried on another dress that I had pulled, by the same designer, in Ivory, to see how the color looked on me.

And that was it.

I have a dress and I feel absolutely beautiful in it. I wanted to wear it home yesterday. It is so unlike anything that I ever thought I would wear and is very formal. The wedding has definitely become a formal affair with the purchase of this dress and I have to go back to the drawing board for bridesmaids dresses!

I am so excited and it has finally hit me that I am getting married!

I cannot wait to put on my dress in January and walk down that aisle!!
